Tina Day, 44, was indicted for theft of property over $60,000 in an alleged scheme between August of 2006 and April of 2010. She is free on $30,000 bond. An investigation showed that Day, who worked for Dr. Stephen Thompson, would offer 10 percent discounts if patients paid their bills in cash, but that she would then record the payments as credit card transactions. An audit showed that Day collected more than $77,000 from 93 cash payments during the four-year period but that there was no record of the money being deposited into the dentist’s business account.
Tina Day investigated by both state and federal authorities
The lengthy investigation involved federal and state agencies. The case is being handled by Byron Winsett, chief prosecutor of the DA’s Public Corruption & Economic Crime Unit, which is responsible for cases involving money laundering, and fraud and theft from governmental agencies, non-profit organizations and businesses.
